Free Document Shred Day
Take advantage of free document shredding at three locations in the Upstate.
Better Business Bureau® of the Upstate & AARP® South Carolina are partnering together to host Secure Your ID "Shred Day," a national, semi-annual identity theft document shredding event designed to educate and deter consumers and small businesses from becoming victims of identity theft. The event features on-site shredding, electronic recycling, plus tips to protect identity. All proceeds from the event benefit Better Business Bureau Education Foundation (BBBEF)
On April 26, the Simpsonville shred event will be held at Heritage Park 861 SE Main Street, Simpsonville SC 29680. On April 27, the Greenville shred event will be held at the BBB office, 408 N. Church St., Greenville SC 29601 and Anderson Mall (Back Entrance) Civic Center Blvd Entrance off Martin Luther King Blvd Anderson, SC 29621.
AARP® and BBBEF will be providing educational handouts to prevent consumers and businesses from becoming victims of identity theft.
Individuals and businesses can take advantage of FREE on-site document shredding, electronic recycling, and take home practical tips to prevent identity theft online and off.
Goodwill on-site will accept old desktop computers, laptops, monitors and printers. Before reselling, hard drives are wiped clean to the standards of the US Department of Defense.
The maximum number of boxes and plastic bags per consumer, business and vehicle is 3. Cardboard boxes will be emptied and returned to consumers. Due to safety concerns and to ensure that we are able to serve as many vehicles as possible, we are unable to accept attendees on foot or allow consumers to get out of their vehicle to watch their paper shredded. The complimentary shred event is first come, first serve or until the shred trucks fill up, so coming early is advised.
